While this certainly isn't the first time we've made the argument for suburban living, this time we're taking a new approach by looking at the cities that haven't drained your pockets in years past, but are making up for lost time.
According to CNNMoney, a team at CoreLogic Case-Shiller, which calculated the increases in housing prices (see below for more) for major metro areas across the country, found the housing markets in these areas are hotter than ever. And we're not talking "hot" in the hip way -- we're talking more in the sense that they'll burn the cash right out of your pocket with their expected housing price gains that near 10 percent by September in some areas.
If that turns you off of urban living, consider this: New studies reveal that moving to a city can make you calmer, happier and more connected. (But we're guessing that's if you can afford your bills.)
According to their website, CoreLogic Case-Shiller is "the company financial services and real estate professionals turn to for comprehensive data, analytics and services." And as they note with regard to this data in particular, "Forecasts are for the 12 months ending September, 2014. Rankings are for metro areas with populations of one million or more. In addition to its own data, CoreLogic Case-Shiller compiled its results using data from the National Association of Realtors, the Federal Housing Finance Agency, Moody's Analytics and the Bureau of Labor Statistics."
